A more natural English translation would be 'that orange fruit is called an orange by us'

What is the difference between "oranye" and "jeruk"?

Oranye = orange, the color. Jeruk = orange, the fruit.

We call it "jeruk". That orange fruit is called "jeruk" by us. Someone speaking Indonesian isn't telling us it's an orange. Tricky translating.
